Description

Breakthrough on 12Inchsngl

Breakthrough is a record that fits Gaslamp Killer well as a rundown of everything he's been able to imprint on his career so far. It's a run of occasionally disorienting, sometimes frantic, usually unnerving trips into distinct corners of psychedelic and experimental influence that spark briefly to reveal vivid life and fade out just as quickly. And it succeeds, driven as it is by up-front, iron-fisted live drumming that's mixed up into the red. He builds around that neck-snap percussion in ways that dredge up an air of constant tension, ebbing and flowing through so many different forms so quickly that it creates this air of unknowable dread; once it seems like there might be a consistent method to it, it switches focus to some other angle. Pick a style, and he'll coax out the most nerve-twisting elements of it's abrasive side- synthesized dirges that snap a wire and start sparking off into something noisier ("Meat Guilt"); Morricone panic attacks that sound purpose-built to soundtrack a splattery low-budget drive-in movie death ("Critic"); organ-driven garage funk given a stoner-metal lurch ("Dead Vets").
